  2. Liz Truss has abandoned No10's 'PM's deal or no deal' line altogether, for a new binary choice of Brexit/no Brexit. Tells @Emmabarnett: “If my colleagues don’t sign up to this in Parliament, we’re in grave danger of not leaving at all”.

  3. Mystified by Amber Rudd's statement that Parliament will stop no deal as a) makes Labour whips and Keir Starmer's job a lot easier and more importantly, b) it ain't necessarily so: newstatesman.com/brexit-no-deal…

  4. I saw an amnesty on "Things I don't understand about Brexit" yesterday. Mine is: can Britain literally 'crash out' without a deal in March, purely by default? Journalists and politicians very inconsistent on this.

    'Westminster twitter' is far more reassuring on this point than 'law twitter'. I fear the latter understand things better.

  6. thanks. That's also what the lawyers on twitter seem to say. But I keep reading these pieces saying that barely anyone wants 'no deal', ergo it won't happen
